I would also like to know how much psi I would need to run to get 300hp. Thanks for the help!

So i am looking to get the x-charger when i have saved enough money. I live in high altitude (SP?) and i am told i will lose 1.5-2 PSI right off the bat. What PSI should i be runnning to get close to 300 rwhp? And now the question related to this topic, is the 6 strong enough to run that psi without switching out anything else?
I am by no means an XCharger authority, gonna bump this for one of those guys to give input.

It depends on the engine. With this engine and what I read on this forum and what my dad told me (and I'm talking about a guy who is after all a qualified Ford factory certified auto mechanic and has been in the trade for 35 years) is that this engine won't have problems with a supercharger kit attached. I thought about putting a supercharger on my vw bug and people tell me that the thing will eventually fly apart with that on there. There's a big difference here though, we're talking 2000's technology versus 1930's technology. You'll be fine on this one. Plus this V6 is a more solid, more efficient, and better engineered engine than the 4.6L V8 to begin with.

I would disagree with that statement, especially if you are referring to the 4.6 3V.
The 4.0 engine is based off old design that has been re-engineered to today's standards.

The modular motors are definitely better engineered than our cologne based pushrod motors with enough chains for a Mr. T starter kit. We have strong cast iron blocks, but they are not bullet proof.

Heh heh. I can't take credit for that one, I saw that line describing the 4.0 back with the S197's first came out.
